Steven Gellman, aka The Hidden Poet, http://www.hiddenpoet.com/ has been playing live for a couple of solid decades now and is showing no signs of slowing down. Having broken out on his own after the demise of folk darlings Diamond Rose, Steven consistently reinvents himself. While his early career as a single artist had him putting his heartbreak on display after a bad breakup with the “Love Loss Longing” EP, these days, Steven is likelier to be found begging Highlanders in local pubs to have traditional Scottish ballads sing-alongs than he is to be sobbing into his pint.
A project of the Chicago Tribune, in conjunction with Agate Publishing, Ask Amy: Advice For Better Living (Midway, 2014), compiles several columns featured in the “Ask Amy” column by advice columnist Amy Dickinson. In the book, Dickinson, who also authored the recent memoir, The Mighty Queens of Freeville, provides insightful and intelligent guidance on a variety of themes, including family, dating, work, boundaries, and life online. There are even questions and answers pertaining to LGBT issues within the book. Dickinson’s embrace of the LGBT community, which differs greatly from her late-to-the-table predecessor, Ann Landers, recently made headlines when she set a parent straight, so to speak, regarding their homophobic treatment of a gay son. I spoke with Amy in January 2014 about the book and her column.
